Hungry Jack Hashbrowns

I have tried and tried and tried to make homemade hashbrowns.  Ok, I've really only tried to make them once, the rest of the times were my boyfriend's attempts.  They always turn out gloppy and gray, hardly appealing & forget browning!

So when I came across Hungry Jack's Premium Hashbrown Potatoes I thought, hallelujah this could be the answer to my weekend breakfast prayers!

Why was I so excited?  Check out these ingredients!


No oil!  No crap!  Hooray breakfast is saved!

True, it would be nice to have dried potatoes only in that box, but everything else is pretty much acting as a preservative to prevent spoilage.

Simply put, this cute little milk container box contains dried potato shreds that are reconstituted with warm water within a few minutes.  Once re-hydrated, dump potatoes into a non-stick frying pan along with some sauteed onion & red pepper (some kraut, if you dare) to heat through and brown.  Top with mustard and you're going to be one happy camper!

The directions actually suggest to cook with oil, but as you can see from the nutritional stats that is just going to ruin your day!  Just say NO!  Use a little water to prevent sticking if you run into trouble.  And if you're still in doubt check out, Cooking Without Oil - Yes It Can Be Done!

And in case you're wondering, they packed A LOT of potatoes in that little container!

Check It Out!
